Following the devastating 8.9 magnitude earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Google has launched  the Person Finder Tool to help locate or get information on missing loved ones and friends.

Now, Google has launched the Person Finder Tool, a free information service for those posting information about people or looking for someone. The tool is available in multiple languages. Google uses data from the social networking sites and across the Internet to find records on missing people – they are currently tracking 64,600 records as of Sat., March 12.

 Google Missing Person Finder Tool: 2011 Japan Earthquake page can be found HERE or in English.  More information about the Google Missing Person Finder Tool, HERE.

Google Person Finder, a project of the Google Crisis Response division of, was built by Google engineers in response to the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti to help those affected by the earthquake connect with their loved ones. Google Person Finder can also accept data from other similar registries and display them together at one place.
